Curriculum Vitae
I am an Assistant Professor with the Languages Department at the Federal University of Pernambuco. I became a linguist out of fascination for weird languages. Nowadays I don't think there are weird languages anymore, and I spend my academic time arguing that languages only seem weird if you don't look at them the right way. I got my Bachelor's and Master's from Unicamp, in Brazil, and my PhD from MIT, in the US. I have been working on the documentation of Brazilian Indigenous languages since I was a sophomore. I specialized in Brazilian languages Bororo (topic of my Master's thesis) and Kĩsêdjê (topic of my Phd thesis). My main theoretical interests are the argument structure of clauses and the syntax of clause combining.
